I have been working at Sears part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

employee discount - 20%, 10%
different types of jobs - cashier, MCA, back room, signage, Leads, managers, appliances, mattresses, etc

Cons

hours (only part time, very hard to get full time)
hours - and shifts change every week
schedule - you find out Saturday what your next weeks hours will be (you find out Saturday if you work Sunday. very hard to make any plans)
No raise, minimum wage, hard to move up, hard to make any plans, hard to get full time position unless you are a Lead or manager.
Some positions are commission
Lots of disorganization.
A point system that if you get to 5 you're terminated.

Advice to Management

Give better notice for scheduling, get rid of awful point system, better management
Horrible customer service! It takes so long to check out and people leave or complain all the time! Too many questions to ask and signs are always wrong.

    I worked at Sears full-time

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, in store discount and finding great deals. The Associates for the most part are all good people.

    Cons

    The upper management is a joke. In the years i was there we went through 4 store managers and the last one is the worst of all.

    To many visits to the store by cooperate, making the associates and dept managers work like crazy while the store manager sits on his ass and yells at everyone then goes home.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example
